Helping Health and Human Services Agencies Digitize

State health and human services agencies face common organizational challenges, including serving vulnerable constituents while dealing with budgetary constraints and modernizing their systems with rapidly changing healthcare technology.

They’re also grappling with new reimbursement models, in addition to government-specific regulations for the healthcare industry. For example, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act both create new considerations for healthcare agencies in terms of data protection and governance.

The need for digital workspaces that take into account all of these considerations is more relevant than ever. With a digital workspace, agencies can deliver applications and data to any employee, on any device, in any location without sacrificing security. Application layering facilitates this capability by separating apps from the underlying operating system. Then, they can be managed once but delivered across multiple devices.

A digital workspace provides healthcare teams with secure and seamless access to electronic health records, streamlines application delivery and management, protects patient health information (PHI) for regulatory compliance, and supports staff mobility to increase productivity and citizen engagement.

If you’re a state or local healthcare employee, register for Citrix’s online training, “Get in the Know – Helping Healthcare Agencies Go Digital,” at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20 to learn how a digital workspace solution can contribute to your mission of promoting health and wellness and a better quality of life for constituents.

Specifically, you’ll learn how a digital workspace solution:

  • Connects field employees — like visiting nurses, health educators, and social workers — to hospital resources and allows them to input data at the point of service using any device.
  • Provides consistent access to applications and data both onsite and offsite to bolster services delivery, professional collaboration, and productivity.
  • Provides better security and availability for state healthcare systems during open enrollment periods.
  • Helps state health departments collaborate and share data with other agencies and private research partners.
